Which protocol are you using? TCP/IP with localhost? Or, FB's local
protocol? The problem is that all the services run in Session 0 on
Vista, and that the first user that logs on is in session 1(you are
practically running in a terminal services session). While in WinXP,
it would be Session 0 for both the services and the first user that
logs on.
